    Bertioga has a real nice beach that stretches for quite a while and as you usually see in Brazil there is a good collection of beach bars and beach restaurants where you can hang out and suck up the local scene while you are filling yourself with seafood and caipirinha.
    There are no big resorts in Bertioga only small hotels and pousadas, so the scene there is quite local and very relaxed.

    Right by the beach there is a culture center where they have exhebitions of varous things and as i understood they are mainly temporary so i can´t really say will be there when you visit, but when i was there they were showing some local art and i thought it was nice even if the place is fairly small.
    I did not pay anything to enter there so you should certainly give it a go if you are in town.
    The casa de cultura is located right where the rivermouth meets the beach in Bertioga.

    This antique fort was built in 1531. From this point, exploration parties started in many directions. On the wall in one of the rooms is a painting of the party that left this fortress in Bertioga to start the city of Rio de Janeiro.

    One of the really nice things about Bertioga is that it is still an active fishing town with fishing boats and fishermen and a local fish market.
    it gives the town a much nicer feel than towns that has just become big tourism or ugly factories.
